My Grandpa Olsen died last week so I flew up for his funeral. I loved being there and I felt like the whole weekend was a great start to my new year.
This year I'd like to spend trying to be more like C. Lowell, my Grandpa Olsen.
|C. Lowell Olsen|
He was "fiercely loyal", as was said at his funeral, especially to his wife. He loved his family and was always there to love and support them. He would do anything he could to make sure they were taken care of.
He was educated and loved education. Growing up he could only finish grade 10 because his family needed his hands on the farm after his Dad had a heart attack. After serving in the war, his mission and starting a family, he finished his high school education and college. He became a teacher and then principal. To him death was a graduation to the next life... and graduate he did.
He endured to the end and I love him for his good example. Thank you Grandpa.

Along with trying to live more like my Grandpa,
this year I'd like to build my relationship with my Grandma.
